March 30, 2023. pretty tight.
The weather service was off. The forecast was for improving conditions and clearing skies during the day. We had upper elevation cloud and light snow showers on and off throughout the day. We were able to get into the aircraft after a brief weather delay and stay under the clouds skiing in Conrad Creek for […]
March 29, 2023. snow day.
A fierce cold front moved in today closing the lodge road for several hours with strong winds and heavy snow. Four to six inches of new snow at the lodge and more above, setting up tomorrow’s single day and the incoming weekend three-day tour with a fresh coat of stoke. We didn’t ski today, some […]
March 28, 2023. the first feel of spring.
Things can change so quickly, 48 hours ago it didn’t get above 15 degrees for a high temperature. Today was the first feel of spring for the 2023 season. Clear skies, moderating temperatures, calm winds and seven runs in Talbot Creek, Right Fork and Conrad Creek. A warming snow surface on solar aspects and cold […]

As stacked as it gets. Record snow in the Rubies. March is winding down and the 2023 season is rolling. Eleven runs today in Cold Creek and Conrad Creek with more than a foot of cold snow on a soft base and clear skies. It doesn’t get much better anywhere anytime than current conditions here. […]
March 26, 2023. turn & burn.
After 10 runs yesterday and eight on Friday, we finished the tour today skiing 4 runs of extra vertical in Thorpe Creek. The run we call Cherry Pie served it up with exceptional powder conditions.

March 24, 2023. tryin to be in the game but you’re not even a playa.
One of the best things about Ruby? No down days. Cloud kept us in our snowcat terrain but it didn’t matter much because we have some of the best late March skiing in memory. A foot of new snow overnight and 2 feet in 48 hours on a soft base. 8 runs today in Conrad. […]
March 23, 2023. broken record.
We woke up to a thick cloud layer with all of the mountain tops obscured this morning. After the single day orientations we had an improving trend and we took it one run at a time in Talbot Creek. It seems like every time we go to Talbot Creek there is a foot of new […]

Snow and cloud kept us in the snowcats today for three extra vertical runs in Conrad Creek to finish the tour. More than 10.5 inches of liquid precipitation has fallen since March 1st at the Upper Lamoille […]

Nine runs in Talbot Creek and Right Fork Canyon before the incoming storm system with strong winds and […]
